Eggers wins TED Prize

Author Dave Eggers who totally rocked my world with his 2000 memoir, A heartbreaking work of staggering genius because he did everything that i’d been told not to do as a writer, especially a new, emerging writer. But this style totally appealed to the writer in me who refused the advice of ‘writing teachers’ and deep down inside wanted to break all the rules just to break them. Well TED, which stands for Technology, Entertaiment, Design, and comprises a group of more than a thousand people worldwide recently awarded Eggers with their prestigious TED Prize, which was created “as a way of taking the inspiration, ideas and resources that are generated at TED and using them to make a difference.” Read about it here and be sure if you don’t already know about Eggers’ incredible 826 programs, to get caught up and be sure to buy a glass eye or some pirate perfume while you’re at it.
